Coronavirus Update

The State Government has announced an expansion of the mandatory vaccination policy to further protect Western Australia in response to public health advice.

WA Police Force employees are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to attend the workplace. This includes both 1st and 2nd doses together with a booster dose, unless a valid medical exemption is granted by the Chief Health Officer.

As part of the Final Assessments stage of the recruitment and selection process, applicants will be required to provide evidence of their Covid-19 Vaccination Status in one of the following formats:

  • A COVID-19 Digital Certificate
  • Australian Immunisation Register immunisation history statement or
  • Vaccinate WA written confirmation
  • Evidence of a valid medical exemption granted by the Chief Health Officer.

Applicants will not progress beyond this stage until the required evidence is received.

In response to the COVID-19 situation, the WA Police Force will be suspending face-to-face recruitment assessments and the Police Recruiting Reception is closed for walk-in applications and queries. 

Applications will still be accepted electronically and applicants are encouraged to contact Police Recruiting by phone on 08 9301 9607 or email police.recruiting@police.wa.gov.au if you have any queries about the recruitment process. 

If you have any questions please contact Shirley Gilchrist on 9301 9628 or Amy Hand on 9301 9629.
